Comparative Overview: Sailor Pro Gear vs. Pro Gear Realo

Here comes yet another installment of a video-series that I have started a while ago: the “Comparative Overview-Series” that already has quite a few episodes.

These contributions are pretty well received – and seem to often be more helpful than single pen reviews – so I guess I will keep doing these posts and also look into developing this format a bit more.

Is there any specific comparative overview that you would want to see? Drop me a line, and I will see what I can do!

For now: After having already compared the Sailor Pro Gear to its smaller sibling, the Pro Gear Slim, I am today looking at a comparison to its bigger cousin, the piston-filling Pro Gear Realo.

Before we hop into the review, I would like to take the opportunity to thank La Couronne du Comte in the Netherlands for supporting this video overview. You can also buy the Sailor pens at their webshop (no affiliate-link, just a friendly pointer).

But now, check out the video-overview below, which is as always preceded by some quick facts. Again, I hope the review is helpful and that you enjoy watching it!
